It is with heavy hearts that we announce that Dr. Roger Slatt passed February 22. Dr. Slatt served as the Director of the School from 2000 to 2006. He later became the Director of the Institute of Reservoir Characterization and the Gungoll Family Chair of Petroleum Geology and Geophysics. Dr. Slatt was on over 150 student committees, many of which he chaired.
Dr. Slatt cherished his students and always saw the potential they had to become brilliant geoscientists and engaged members of their communities. He made an important impact not only on the students, alumni, School, College and University but also the industry and field. He will be greatly missed by all, but his legacy will be carried on through his students' work. A memorial for Dr. Slatt will be held later this spring. We will share that information once details become available.
We invite you to share your memories of Dr. Slatt and what he meant to you at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will ensure your messages are delivered to his family.
